What's the color of the dress?
Posted by: Vini -- 1:54 AM EST
   
Since Thursday evening the Kingdoms of Winds have been talking about the controversy over the Queen’s dress that supposedly appear in different colors to people. Calm, we’ll explain you!

It all started when Queen Yun decided to renovate her wardrobe for the renewed Palace and she asked help of some of the dazzling socialites of the community to help her. With her new attire, the queen was seen today with a new dress, which created an endless debate and made many people lose their sleep!

That’s because the socialites have very different opinions about the new dress colors. Ranei defends that the new dress the Queen was wearing was black and blue while Foxfire swears that the dress was white and gold.


What’s your opinion about it?

Lunal still didn't ask for more help
Posted by: Vini -- 11:04 PM EST
   
Lunar new year is within two days and so far Lunal, the friendly laborer standing south of Kugnae Palace hasn`t told us what else he needs help with or even moved from there to do his preparations. When Lunal first appeared there at January 19th, he required 3 sets of different items to: send out invitations, do the decorations and also food for participants to eat. Some people thought it was very strange that he was worried about being "very late" for the preparations while he was still a month away and some wondered why gather so much food way before the party, since some of the beverage he collected rot within couple of weeks.

Few assumptions people can take from this are that either:
  • Option 1 - Lunal really likes leaving things to the last moment and will ask for more help tomorrow and tomorrow only, considering Lunar New Year is at 7am February 19th our time
    ((Its 7am for us due to chinese time zone being different)); -OR-

  • Option 2 - Lunal already got all the items he needed and will inform us after the party, leaving us all wondering (most likely to happen); -OR-

  • Option 3 - Lunal is scamming us all for items and probably isn't even married!



  • We are watching you Lunal!

    Here's a quick guide for the valentines day event

    To start the event you must find Norah in the wilderness.
    The easiest way to find Norah is to go to Kugnae, enter Koguryo valley and walk to the Wilderness.

    at coordinates (X)188 (Y)201 you will find Druid Norah, Say hello to her.


    She tells her story about her withering garden due to falling in love with a "smashing Barbarian" an cannot seem to concentrate. the barbarian offers his hand in marriage and Norah sends a Response with Golden Bunny JR but he's gone missing. She then asks you to go on an adventure to find out what happened to Golden Bunny JR.

    Head north east to Lisse who is very close, found at Coordinates (X)201 (Y)190 and click on Lisse.

    Lisse asks if she can help you on your adventure, Select yes, Please! She asks what you're looking for, tell her golden bunny jr and she will respond with telling you she seen him go to the rat cave next to her a few days ago.

    Lisse will give you a map of wilderness tunnels, enter the rat tunnel beside her and use the map.


    you will be transported to Mad Rat Ring where Golden bunny Jr is captured there.

    click the Rat on the left then the rat on the right to be given the option of either saving Golden bunny JR or giving the rats your map to help them.

    Depending on your option you will get a different legend mark outcome.


    If you choose to help Golden bunny Jr you will get the legend mark of Helped saved the Wilderness
    And receive 7 Poppy Wreaths (12s full room para) (Tradable)



    If you choose to help the rats you'll get the legend mark of Hindered restoration of the wilderness
    and receive 7 lucky rabbit foot(12s harden body) (Tradable)

    no matter which option you choose you will be able to continue the quest and send The love letter from Druid Norah to the barbarian.

    Click on Norah and she will give you a love letter, Take the love letter Above the barbarian cave easily found by going to Buya south gate to the wilderness And find Thorlee, he will thank you an give you the legend mark of saved a love lost, once upon in the wilderness.

    Server Reset: Kugnae Palace was revamped!
    Posted by: Vini -- 5:30 AM EST
       
    * The royal builders have been hard at work on a new palace in Kugnae and the scaffolding is off! New staff members will will be getting settled in shortly after they complete training, but for now enjoy the new palace!

    With this statement at Dream Weavers board was announced the biggest update and upgrade that Koguryo kingdom has seen in years. It's now the largest building in whole Nexus. When Nagnang palace was rebuilt we all thought it was huge, but Kugnae Palace is beyond anything you've seen. Counting with Royal Ministry rooms and Royal Army rooms, it has over 33 rooms, maybe more depending on how many lie behind the locked doors of ballroom.

    To give an idea of how big the new palace is, this post around 5-6 hours to conclude and will get you just a little glimpse of how each of the rooms look like. If you're curious to see the rest, you should go there and pay a visit before some of the rooms (like King's bedroom) get locked.

    Before you continue, I would like to thank General Hatiki for showing me around and allowing me to be your tour guide through the pictures below. Enjoy!



    The new courtyard of the palace leads to six different rooms: Koguryo Tribunal Hall, Royal Army Quarters, Palace Mezzanine, Coliseum Atrium (didn't change), Throne Room and Royal Ministry of Koguryo.


    The Mezzanine leads to rooms: Koguryo Royal Court, Kugnae Palace's prison, Victory Square (didn't change), King MuHyul's Jeongwon (didn't change) and Ball room (it's not known if it changed).


    The Court room already existed at previous palace design, but it was locked most of the times and you could only visit when a Royal pardon was happening. Now, just like Nagnang's palace, it's open to the public.


    The Palace prison already existed at the previous design, but was called "Oubliette" and was locked most of the times. Now it's available for anyone to visit.


    The iconic throne room of the palace now has thrones. Koguryo was the only kingdom which the throne room didn't have thrones yet. Now all Royals can rule from their seat.


    Koguryo Treasury didn't exist at previous palace design, or if it did, it wasn't available for visit. It's a brand new concept similar to Nagnang palace.


    The stairways didn't exist at old palace design. There are 4 of them, two at each side of the throne room. Each floor from each side leads to a different froom. West Stairway 1 leads to Mhul's chamber, west Stairway 2 leads to Palace Hall. East stairway 1 leads to Kugnae Baths, east stairway 2 leads to Palace Kitchen. Both stairways are connected on top floor through the Dining Hall.


    Mhul's chamber already existed at old palace design, but was at a different side of the palace and was quite smaller.


    The Palace Hall is brand new room for the palace. It leads to all the bedrooms, the King's, a guest room and another Royal bedroom.


    The King's bedroom is a new room to the palace, or if already existed it wasn't available for public view. Now you can see where King Mhul and Queen Yun sleep. Their bed is huge!


    The Royal bedroom is another new room, or if it existed before it wasn't available for public view. Perhaps it was Prince Mhul's bedroom when King Yuri was still alive or perhaps it's a room prepared a possible new prince someday.


    The guest bedroom is also a new room in the palace and good thing to have for Mhul to receive his royal guests.


    The dining room is a new room for the palace and a huge one. Can have many feasts there and surely through some good celebrations.


    The Palace Kitchen is a new room to the palace. How did people eat there before?



    The Kugnae Baths is an old room to the palace and quite classic. The room was updated but the original layout was kept, just upgraded to match the rest of the palace.


    The Koguryo royal army also got new rooms to match the rest of the palace. First they got a room similar to clan gardens called "Koguryo Army Quarters" and in this room 3 doors, one that is available just to soldiers to use, the regular one in the middle leading to barracks and the right one leading to their new Arena.


    The new KRA barracks kept the essence of the previous design, but with some renewed and unique changes, such as KRA's own prison as well as a huge arsenal and armory.


    The KRA arena has been upgraded too to match the new design of the palace.


    Three new rooms are still pending screenshots: the tribunal room was locked, the ministry room and minister chamber are confirmed to be renewed too, but we'll need Minister Vales to all us to post about those last two here.

    It's obviously not the last time we'll post about Koguryo palace changes, since as you noticed there's no Royal staff members ((NPCs)) working at the new rooms yet. We sure hope they'll be hired and introduced soon.

    Server Reset: Crusades doors pushbacks
    Posted by: Vini -- 11:58 PM EST
       
    * The balanced carnage entrance will now push you back instead of sending you back to your starting point if you don't meet one of the requirements, as posted by GM Stein on Dream Weavers board.



    Since today's reset the Nagnang's crusades doors won't send you back to subpath circle/inns/home if you try to enter it without wearing the vita and mana balancer sub-accessories. It will simply push you back a few spaces and you can easily remember change your equipment.

    This change only affects Crusader's doors for now, but Head Host Drywater mentioned that this new user-friendly feature might be copied to Carnage of Riches doors when people try to enter wrong levels.
